Why, Where and How of Azure Cloud Services for Development

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

10:45AM to 1:00PM **Objective

**The entire computer industry has been buzzing about cloud computing for a while now. There's also been talk about this "as-sure" thing from Microsoft. But like many others, you may be confused by all the terms and technologies involved. In this session we'll bring both these topics into clear focus. We will show you how the cloud can complement and extend your on-premise solutions. As well as what makes sense to move completely to the cloud or leave on-premise. When you leave, you’ll know where cloud computing and the Windows Azure platform fits in your technology toolbox. Topics that will be covered: -  Level-setting “Cloud Computing” 

-  Cloud Computing Models 

-  Insight into Windows cloud – Azure and BPOS
